Oxford Hawks welcomed the University of Bristol to their home turf. The game started in Hawks favour as the home side dominated the early exchanges. The backline set the standards high, with exceptional ball pace and composure on the ball not letting the opposition forwards get a sniff!

It was a game of space for the half backs and inside forwards as Bristol's press appeared narrow and down the middle allowing Man of the Match and silky skilled Henri Gordon to cause endless problems on the left hand side! Hawks managed to win an early corner where Caro Harris scored their first goal.

Hawks continued to take the game in their stride. Lucy Stewart managed to win the ball in the centre and passed the ball through to Ella Cusack whose beautiful reverse stick cross was knocked in by Lyndsey White jumping in front of the keeper. By half time the score was 2-0.

Hawks came out in the second half still playing a very high standard of hockey, and a tip in goal from Jo Tolson extended the home side's lead to 3-0. However with Hawks a little slow, Bristol came out hard and pressed the backline with determination leading to their first goal making it 3-1. A few nerves for the crowd moments later as Bristol then made the score 3-2. But it didn’t last long, as Oxford Hawks then showed the Bristol side that they were not to be beaten at home and Lyndsey slotted home her second goal to make the final score 4-2. It was a competitive and good spirited game and Hawks looks forward to playing them in the second half of the season.
